GSD Standard, Types and Colors

THE ILLUSTRATED STANDARD OF THE GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG

Linda Shaw says, “The standard for the German Shepherd Dog, while annoyingly vague in many respects, has not changed appreciably over the years. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of the breed. From the 1940′s, when most dogs in most countries looked pretty much the same, we now have West German show, West German working, East German, Czechoslovakian, English Alsation, American show and probably others yet in the making.”

GSRNE would like to take a look at some of these various types of dogs beginning here. Artist, illustrator & author Linda Shaw has written this comprehensive article on the structure of the GSD.
